At last my Wisconsin is running, after stripping the carb for the fourth time a piece of junk was found rattling around, with that removed it is now once again ready to work. A new muffler is required but thats an easy fix. To all those who gave excellent suggestions as to how to remedy my problems a big thank you. I can now move on to my next project. I am sure to run into problems and when I do I will return to you for more of your expert advise. Once again I thank you all. Welshboy, aka Robert.
